A gateway to that branch of Special Librarianship dealing with library services to the incarcerated in the United States and Canada. International librarianship links (IFLA, LA/PLG, etc.) with similar focus will "globalize" this site. Correctional librarianship in the USA would be dull without its unique - "access to the court" - service provision requirements.

We welcome comments, additions, links, etc. to enhance this prototype website. Thank you for your interest.
